Hawking admits quantum gambling habit

STEPHEN Hawking has made millions by using quantum theory in gambling, he has revealed.

The physicist funds his deep thinking-time by using the multiple-universe theory to prove his horse or greyhound has come in first.

Hawking said: “It can be difficult to explain to the cashier at Wimbledon dog track that Mystic Nights in the 7:20 race both did and didn’t place by a nose.

“I once got turfed out of White City for failing to convince them the betting slip I’d tampered with wasn’t just in a process of flux between two states.”

Hawking began doing physics-based gambling as a student,when he would bet people he could make three pints of Guinness disappear into an alternate reality in under a minute.

He was banned from Las Vegas for quantum card counting, a method that proves that all possible cards have been dealt simultaneously meaning he has blackjack and the dealer has a bust hand of infinity.

Hawking’s latest betting project employs string theory to show that all football teams are connected on a sub-atomic level, meaning the 1000-1 bet he has placed on Manchester United winning the league this year will be valid.

He said: “If anyone read more than 20 pages of A Brief History Of Time they’d discover it is mainly about how to make big money at casinos.”

Kate Bush warns everyone she now looks like Lemmy

KATE Bush has announced her first live shows for 35 years but warned fans she is not quite the same.

The reclusive Wuthering Heights star said that while she had continued to ‘explore her creative landscape’ she had forgotten to moisturise since 1987.

She added: “I’m an obsessive artist so I can spend months hunched over a piano in the dark, stopping only to wolf down a Monster Munch sandwich and a two litre bottle of home made wine.

“The point is, I look like Lemmy now. It took a bit of getting used to, but now I prefer it.

“Anyway, I’ve written 52 songs about butterflies which I think you’re going to enjoy.”
